Connections: The debate over tax fairness in New York State

Democrats control New York State politics, and with a new budget, they’ve made some strong statements on taxes. In particular, the political left (ranging from DSA to the Green Party to various coalitions) have called for the state to raise taxes on the wealthiest New Yorkers. Democrats declined to do so, saying it would have negative consequences.

Our guests discuss tax fairness, and how to fund priorities:

  • Michael Kink, executive director of the Strong Economy for All Coalition
  • Jeremy Cooney, former chief of staff for the City of Rochester, and recent Democratic candidate for New York State Senate
  • John Calia, executive coach and author of "The Reluctant CEO: Succeeding Without Losing Your Soul”
